So the devs picked another line for you to grind if you don't have T-10. Supposedly IS-3 and IS-7 are assault heavies, whereas T-10 is more of a mobile fire support.

Obviously, they wanna test it on ST first. And they're still discussing what to do with T-10 after removal.

I understand the idea of bringing the obj 257 as T9 before the is7 but have you checked the armor profile?

Unless they change the armor angels by a hughe lot, its going to be OP. It has even more angeled sidearmor then t-22 which is really bad for the game.

Whats your definition of paper. Its Is3/defender level of armor. Sure its not a Is7 or 113 turret, but still not a very easy pen. Furthermore not beeing able to track and pen a tank in the same shot is a massive deal

17th for RU with EU on the 18th or 19th sounds about right.

https://tanks.gg/tank/obj-257/model

 

same weakspots of defender/is6 (cupolas) and same turret overmatch above the gun like on is3/obj260/is4  ..and the frontal (lowerplate) weakspot is not more of 250 mm if you are shoting on this tank frontally..easy pen!!

It will be nerfed a bit and brought back as tier 8 premium tank.

I hope they will nerf the armor profile first.

 

It's basically more heavily armoured T-22 med.

 

​Look at that side armor, it's crazy.

Upper plate seems very thick as well.

​Lower plate seems like a "weakspot", but still, it's very thick.

From what I saw the turret slopes down at the front to the gun mantlet and can be overmatched by every gun at 91mm plus.

 

The cupolas are also easy targets at long range...thing looks like it'll be garbage hull down...

Surely not this patch? But I can see why they want to replace it. Same reason they feel the IS-4 is the odd one out on that line. But then again unlike the other lines so far, it's not getting taken out of the tech tree. I wonder what other tanks will appear on that "mini" branch it will appear on.
